Mr. Murray.
Afternoon Session

Testimony of Jesse Edward Curry Resumed

Mr. Murray.
The President's Commission reconvened at 2 p.m.
Mr. Mccloy.
(presiding). We are ready.
Mr. Rankin.
Chief Curry, I was asking you just as we closed your examination before lunch about Exhibits 709, 711 particularly, and you will recall those are the documents concerning the conversation between Agent Hosty of the FBI and Jack Revill who is your lieutenant of criminal intelligence section, is that right?
Mr. Curry.
It was reported to me, I was given a report to that effect.
Mr. Rankin.
Do you know anything about the matters described in those letters?
Mr. Curry.
Yes.
Mr. Rankin.
Will you tell us what you know about them? Do you want to see them?f
Mr. Curry.
Yes. One of the documents tells me that Lieutenant Revill states that about 2:50 p.m. on the 22d----
Mr. Rankin.
Of what?
Mr. Curry.
November 1963, that he met Special Agent Jim Hosty of the FBI in the basement of the city hall, and at that time Agent Hosty related to Revill that the subject, Oswald, was a member of the Communist Party, and that he was residing in Dallas.
Mr. Rankin.
Did you make any further inquiry after you got that information?
Mr. Curry.
None other than I had a report from V. J. Brian, a detective in criminal intelligence, who was present at the time this conversation took place.
Mr. Rankin.
That later report was as of April 20?
Mr. Curry.
Yes.
Mr. Rankin.
1964?
Mr. Curry.
The last report.
Mr. Rankin.
What was the occasion for that?
Mr. Curry.
I just asked Revill if anyone was with him at the time, and he recalled that Detective Brian was at the time.
Mr. Rankin.
Otherwise, did you know anything more about that matter?
Mr. Curry.
No, sir; I believe Captain Fritz said that he, he told me he knew they had been out to talk to Mrs. Paine.
Mr. Rankin.
By they, who do you mean?
Mr. Curry.
Some of the FBI agents, and that he did know that Oswald apparently knew Hosty, because Hosty was present in the interrogation room.
Mr. Rankin.
By he there at that point who do you mean?
Mr. Curry.
Oswald.
Mr. Rankin.
Yes; but you say he knew.
Mr. Curry.
That Oswald knew Hosty.
Mr. Rankin.
Yes.
Mr. Curry.
Because according to Fritz he said that he was quite bitter, Oswald was quite bitter toward Hosty because he had made the statement that "you mistreated my wife."
Mr. Rankin.
Do you know how Captain Fritz learned that?
Mr. Curry.
He was in Captain Fritz's office when this statement was made, according to Captain Fritz.
Mr. Rankin.
Now, after the assassination, did you give any orders of your staff, making any reports about anything they knew about either the assassination or the Tippit killing?
Mr. Curry.
Yes, sir; we had all of our officers who knew anything at all about it to submit reports which is a normal procedure in any unusual incident.
Mr. Rankin.
How did you direct that that be done?
Mr. Curry.
Just through my staff.
Mr. Rankin.
Was that in writing?
Mr. Curry.
No, sir.
